Inky purple. This benefitted from the two hours in the decanter. Beautiful nose of graphite and sweet green pepper. Black fruits are primary but there is lovely earth and cedar that follow. This wine has great acidity and tannic structured, though the tannins are now pleasingly soft. Terrific now so no reason to keep your mitts off. But will no doubt be better in 2-5 years and fresh for longer. A treat.

Right out of the decanter, this is showing a nice but somewhat reserved nose of dark cherries and graphite. On the palate, it's fairly acidic and just a little tart. Tannins are strong and kind of drying.

2 hours and it's a different wine. The initial grumpiness has blown off. Unlike a 2010 Baudry Grez a few nights ago (which benefitted from a few hours of air) this wine needed it.

The nose has come around, and it's juicy and fresh. Not at all musty like before. The wine has also taken on a nice "natural wine" juiciness. Still serious and structured, but the freshness is really its calling card. Very distinctive and a nice voice to have in the Loire CF discussion.

Visuel: Rubis aux reflets violacés
Olfactif: Fruité gourmand et pure, réglisse, petits fruits, très grande fraicheur.
Gustatif: Ça se poursuit en bouche, sur un fruité exubérant, fraiche acidité, goûteux, sur les fruits rouges et noirs, réglissé, grande souplesse au niveau des tanins. Saine amertume en finale.
Du vin nature comme celui-ci, j'en boirais à tout les jours!!!

My wife grabbed another bottle of this wine from the recesses of the cellar while I was out - I'd've waited a couple more years. I didn't taste it until the second night after opening, when it showed a fantastic ratio of flavor intensity to alcohol, with vivid, almost edgy acidity and tannins, some cedar, bit of stem wood, along some fruity unctiousness in the aromas and textures. A remarkable wine, surprisingly powerful. I sipped it, but it should shine especially brightly with a good, fatty red meat dish - rib-eye or lamb stew, say. Purchased on release for about $25-28.

Super vin d'une fraîcheur et savoureux, salivant et pourtant assez complexe. Et léger avec ça ! Et le prix ! Et pourquoi je n'en ai pas une caisse !

Good initial nose with white pepper, dry earth and mustiness. But faded with air time. Thin palate on this bottle with some dry earth, green pepper and herbal notes, but a largely empty mid and backpalate but for.

Silken, fragrant, pure and delicious. My only minor, nitpick is that I wish it had just a touch more depth. If Baudy Grezeaux had this texture it would be Cabernet Franc perfection.

That's just me being ornery. This really is fabulous and drinking so well if so young.

Another excellent "Trinch" vintage. Lots of fresh fruit -- blackcurrants and tart cherries-- coupled with savory base notes and well balanced acidity. Wonderful midweek wine. Drinking well now.

After reading COREMILL's perfect review, I can't think of an original thing to say so I'll pay him the compliment of repeating it: "The absolute perfect vin de soif bistro wine. Juicy red fruit, a hint of CB leafiness, minimal extraction but enough concentration to not be overly dominated by acidity bell pepper, pairs with just about everything on the table, goes down super easy. The sort of thing that makes you wish you were sitting at a table on a Paris sidewalk on a sunny Spring afternoon."

Very interesting take on Vouvray. Almost frizante, but not quite! Waves of golden delicious apples and granny smith apples. Almost cider like, which is quite amazing. Full bodied and well balanced, with medium length and very pleasant finish. I liked ir a lot.

After about an hour of air this shows a nose of good fruit, some nice herbal notes and a slight hint of wet clay and chalk. On the palate also fairly generous fruit, but still elegant. Noticable tannins, some herbs again, good chalky minerality, medium acids and slight spice. Medium lenght finish. An enjoyable experience now but will probably benefit from further cellaring.

Aromatics were there but palate was very tight and sour on opening. An hour in the decanter worked wonders. A beautiful showing. It's just opening back up and shows plenty of promise. It was very clean but not squeaky clean.
